                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on THE MUSKETEERS lost their shirt, as THE MUSKETEERS 
lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to OTTAWA SENATORS.  NEW YORK 
had cause to celebrate, after BROWN EYED SUSAN got 12 points by beating BENITO 
CHATTE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, TRYPTOPHAN was winsome, after 
beating FAIZUN GOTE and seeing him lose 7 points.  Now I can't insult PUPPY ON 
PATROL, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me 
if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of ENTENTER should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, HAZAARDS OF CLONING scurried away from ENTENTER.  Oh, the shame!  
If challenges were horses, BENITO CHATTE could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  KYR'TERR, 
I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome Wench.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Albuquerque -- "Western" frontier?  I don't think so.  That was probably Zuni.  Of
course, Zuni is easy to spell, which may disqualify it. -- Benito Chatte

Mercury Sable -- Drat. -- Faizun Gote

Ray Emery -- There are too many golems in this place.  But even so...are you related
to the Emery Boards? -- Halda Impola

you've got much else to do, is it?

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta

SCORING

In the tradition of the Slaughterhouse, scoring will be simple and straight-forward.

success in those endeavors.

*NO POINTS will be awarded for DM, Popularity Leader, Chartered Recognition Leader,
Top Chartered Team, Stylemasters, Top Unchartered Team, and Unchartered Recognition
